Getting Ready for Knights and Castles
It has been party preparation time again, this time for Our Dear Boy and his Knights and Castles party. Now, if your eyes are glazing in anticipation of yet another children’s party post, turn aside now with my blessings. If you like this kind of thing, read on.
Our Dear Boy has been deeply involved in planning this party and it has taken much persuasion to get him to let go of using real swords, an actual battering ram, chains and bolt cutters. He thinks large my boy!
A castle maze and instructions on how to build a siege catapult.
The edibles will be added on the day from the plunder that will be seized by the young knights.
I have also made a stack of cardboard shields from salvaged packing boxes. They are reinforced in the middle with a cardboard bar attached with push pins (they look like rivets on the other side). The handles are made from fabric tape. The kids will decorate these as one of the party activities.
